Metal roofing is on the rise with more and more homeowners choosing to enhance their home’s protection and durability with a metal roof. The aesthetic value and natural curb appeal are beyond enticing, along with the ease of installation and long-term cost savings that they offer. With two types to choose from - concealed faster metal roofing and exposed fastener metal roofing - the decision to dress your home in metal has never been easier. Both types have unique styles, so it’s important to understand which type best suits the look of your home or building and makes the most sense in terms of installation.
Exposed fastener metal roofing is extremely common for a variety of uses due to its attractive price point and short installation process. The panels are secured by overlapping and then driving screws through the overlapping sheet. The screw is accompanied by a washer to ensure that no moisture can enter the pierced hole, and this creates a strong, secure roofing system that can withstand tough weather. Once complete, the screw/washer combination remains visible and each is aligned to be aesthetically pleasing. This roof type comes in Imperial Rib, PBR, 5v Crimp, and corrugated styles.
Concealed fastener metal roofing can take longer to install, but provides a clean, uninterrupted finish by using interlocking seams and concealed clips or fasteners. Price-wise concealed can be a little higher, but the lack of piercing and typically thicker panels means that this roof type may be more resilient when it comes to moisture or rough weather. For residential roofs, concealed fastener metal roofing is a popular choice due to its seamless, streamlined look. Just as with exposed, concealed roofing offers a slim, low-profile roof that really catches the eye. Our concealed roofing is available in Snap Loc, and Loc Seam profiles.
